    Having trouble finding an English version of the 7.41 release notes. Anyone got a link?

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    Despite the link's name, this might be it, actually.
    Read the given material before you think otherwise.

    addendum on post 3

    FWIW

    1. This link is probably an edit of a former page for Knoppix 7.4.0,
    and may get re-named.

    2. I think all the major programs Compiz thru PCManFM listed or 7.4.1
    are the same versions as in 7.4.0.

    3. It may be hard to tell what's different between 7.4.0 and 7.4.1,
    from this page.

    You can see the differences (done by kn-what.sh)

    for DVD V7.2.0 versus V7.4.1
    for DVD V7.4.0 versus V7.4.1
    and an overview of packages maintained by K Knopper

    Greetings, Werner.

    I am impressed at the completeness of your kn-what comparisons,
    but it is hard to imagine that most of the small version differences
    represent any significant consequencial differences. I must admit
    I am not familiar with Knoppix's Adriane features.

    I am also surprised that I can't find either more or some knoppix-specific
    changes like for example Install-to-flash-disk, which I thought might be
    the motivation for a Knoppix version change.
    I now wonder if this version change might have been motivated more
    by Adriane-specific modifications.

    I don't see yet if there is a reason for me to upgrade from 7.4.0 to 7.4.1
    since I don't know what of real consequence is different. A few words in
    the release material would have been a great help in that regard.

    I also suppose, this has been the motivation of KK and perhaps he will not offer a special CD version in the future.

    The script "flash-knoppix" is in a new version within 7.4.1; it isn't in the difference list because it's not a .deb file. You can copy it from the mailing list. I've seen this message in my email account with Icedove and there was this script within the email text and also as an addendum. I've tested the script of the addendum and this doesn't worked for me (see my message in the mailing list).

    With the new version of the script I can still not do a flash disk install with the option "overlay image" by the usual way; it seems to be a udev problem. But strangely enough, the new option "add the name of the .iso file as commandline parameter" (=> Computers without DVD drive) can also handle with the option "overlay image".

    For clarification, flash-knoppix in 7.4.1 and that given in the mailing list are different.
    The original has 721 lines vs the mailing list's 769.
    The mailing list version was/is in response to some complaints about the original in 7.4.1.
    I think Klaus K must consider laptop configurations without dvds pretty important.

    Please disregard the previous.
    I was interested in if there is a difference between flash-knoppix in 7.4.1 and that given in the mailing list.
    I know flash knoppix in 7.4.0 has 721 lines and that in the mailing list has 769.
    I don't know if the mailing llist represents 7.4.1 or a variation thereof.
